  You said it needed a statement? So I wondered whether you could tell me what that is via my inbox.

What do you think of it?

  @Nachos: No, you can't be a tester as testers have already been decided. Maybe next time. :) However, you can subscribe to our newsletter to keep in track with the project!

Latest Version now availible! Includes menu, about section and music!

I still need to implement levels and lives yet... and I still need to fix these bugs!

  That's too... too... hard for both me and the player Masquerade, I wanted stuff like different coloured bricks but good thinking! I have no doubt in you getting an official in this game.

  What if there could be an option in the editor to have a rocketship flying around the level or meteors that float around and they deflect the ball

  Bump! I have made the latest version of the game, with sounds I made using AS3 SFXR.

Just so you know, I am fixing the bugs while I'm at it with the help of Hexicube, if he generously helps me with this statement.

  uh...you dont need to know the circle area, just the distance from the centre...

  The New Bomb Formula:
___________________________

For the sense of the diagram, let's say the ball respawned in the Yellow Brick's target area, this would happen if it was a bomb ball:

  Don't tell me you don't know about this. Or this for that matter.

  @Simon: Thanks! Figured out what Math.abs() relates to. It means Absolute Value.

  yup.............

  Would Tangent be just Math.tan() then?
SimonM 9 years ago
  nope a stands for arc so it's an arc tangent calculated on a second way.

  MARC, can you solve my problem?

Quoting manufan from Astro-Breaker Suggestions and Game Ideas
Hi Again, I have had a little trouble with my script so far, the error is that there is an unexpected ' ' encountered in:

_root.attachMovie('mcBrick', 'brick'+i,_root.getNextHighestDepth());

Here is the file (Not really a class, just displays my code) Error.as

Thanks!

  @Birjo: I need Trig to Program the Ball vs. Brick Collision properly.

@Hex: Sohcahtoa was easy, also I think atan2 is Tangent, right?
Hexicube 9 years ago
  I posted :P
anyways, manufan really needs to learn proper trig...you know, MAN trigonometry, the stuff that makes 'almost men' weep :P

  I am sorry, but what does this have to do with with Astro-Breaker?

  When? What Grade?

  They taught us that stuff in Algebra 2, and I didn't like it. I remember some of it.

  Now I understand sine, cosine and tangent:

Sine: Opposite over Hypotenuse
Cosine: Adjacent over Hypotenuse
Tangent: Opposite over Adjacent.

For example, if the Hypotenuse was 1, the Opposite was 2 and the Adjacent was 1.732 then:

Sine = 1 divide 2 = 0.5
Cosine = 1 divide 1.732 = 1.732
Tangent = 2 divide 1.732 = 1.15473441108545

Can someone verify this?

The link with Ball vs. Brick Collision is the programming of the ball using this along with more Trigonometry and Radians.

  @Chris: Congratz for the 200th post!

@Birjo: Why?
chris3000 9 years ago
  @Manufan1: Well, if AS2 or AS3 wasn't so hard to learn, i'd help you.

What is this topic about?
I am creating a game called Astro Breaker and ideas are always welcome!

What is the game about?
It is a basic spacey, retro Brickbreaker / Arkanoid game. Any suggestions for bricks, powerups or gameplay should be posted on this thread!
